I have successfully installed Magento 2.3.1 in Xampp. But both the frontend and admin panel of the site are not working.

I have cleared the cache but still, it's not working.

Could anyone please help me with this?

Try editing the Validator file from vendor folder with namespace


At around line 138 replace code with this one

$realPath = str_replace('\\', '/',$this->fileDriver->getRealPath($path));

save then cache:flush

  • never manipulate files in vendor! Commented Jul 29, 2019 at 9:45
  • @PhilippSander as this is from local dev only and if you are using windows os

  • no.... you can edit files in the vendor to test stuff. but it's NEVER a proper fix Commented Jul 29, 2019 at 9:50
  1. This might be caused by your PHP version compatibility with your Xampp.
  2. Try to update the PHP version then try.
